So my #prolife friends who haven't read #TheHandmaidsTale have a better idea about the slippery slope some people in the US think we're on after the #DobbsDecision, in the novel Serena Joy was a public figure who helped 6ring about a theocracy ruled by men, in which 1/5
homosexual and premarital sex were punishable by death, and women weren't allowed to read or write and couldn't have their own money so they'd be dependent on men. Because Serena and her husband haven't been able to have children, they are allowed a "handmaid," 2/6
a woman who has somehow "sinned" against the theocracy and is known to be fertile. The Handmaids are ritually raped by the men to whom they are assigned in order to get them pregnant as surrogates for the infertile wives. 3/6

If you're interested in abortion numbers post-Dobbs, this thread is for you 🧵
(I'm going to reference some sources, which I'll hyperlink at the bottom of the thread, FYI)
In February I compiled a bunch of data from sources including Texas Health & Human Services, Texas Policy Evaluation Project, the Journal of the American Medical Association, & the US Census Bureau in order to figure out what abortions in Texas looked like post-Dobbs.
Since virtually all the abortion clinics in TX shut down, the obvious question for many would be, "What abortions? It's illegal now. Right?"


I was looking specifically for data on out-of-state abortions and mail-order abortions, and what the data suggested was tragic.

.@RonDeSantis on crashing Twitter: "We had a huge audience. It did. It was the biggest it ever had. It did break the Twitter Space, and so we're really excited with the enthusiasm. But ultimately it's about the future of our country...We know the country is on the wrong track."
@RonDeSantis .@RonDeSantis to @TGowdySC: "Truth needs to be the foundation of everything we do, and common sense can no longer be an uncommon virtue...We need to win again. As Republicans, we got to dispense with this culture of losing."
@RonDeSantis @TGowdySC .@RonDeSantis: "If we have another 4 yrs of the Biden administration, I think that some of the damage is going to be irreversible...You've got to be able to win and then when you get an office, you've got to be able to deliver results & I think that we have been able to do both"

I've been seeing variations of this statement more and more often: "Heterosexual couples who don't want children should be able to access abortion if bc fails."
#Prolife response:
Abortion = killing a prenatal human being, so no, you shouldn't kill your "unwanted" child. Image

When abolitionists say baby murder must be criminalized as homicide for everyone including mothers, our #ProLife friends often characterize our position as unloving to women.

To those friends, I ask: What is love?
The Bible says that obeying God’s commands toward others is love.

“This is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.” 1Jn 5:3

So, what are God’s commands related to legal/criminal penalties for women who willingly abort?

1. Do not show partiality in legal judgments.

“You shall not be partial in judgment. You shall hear the small and the great alike. You shall not be intimidated by anyone, for the judgment is God's.” Deut 1:17

Expectant management is an option, but so is early delivery. “I say this as a pro-life physician: It is appropriate to deliver at that point. Because we know that likelihood that four days, six days [later], she’s going to be clinically infected."… #prolife
"the likelihood for progression to life-threatening sepsis for the mother is high, and the prognosis for continued extra-uterine life for the fetus is poor, the law allows an exception where an abortion is necessary to preserve the 'life of the mother'. "…
The lawsuit begins by saying the crisis experienced by Zurawski is a “direct result of Texas’s abortion bans.” But later in the document, admits that the law does not require hospitals to wait to act until a life-threatening condition becomes dire.…

Altro che Medioevo per praticare l'IVG si deve entrare in un girone infernale.
Il #Diritto all'#Aborto non si tocca
Fuori i #ProLife e gli #obiettori dagli ospedali pubblici.

"Sono passati quarantacinque anni dalla legge 194, ma interrompere una gravidanza in Italia è ancora
un percorso a ostacoli. L’obiezione di coscienza ha raggiunto picchi drammatici e le associazioni prolife sono ormai presidi fissi in molti ospedali. Per questo il 6 maggio ad Ancona, città simbolo dove le Ivg non sono più praticate, Non Una di Meno ha organizzato una

If this number of 32,260 babies saved is wrong, do you want to know about it?

If not, don't read the rest of this thread.

First, you should know something that Students for Life left out of their story.

The new report that says there were 32k+ fewer abortions since Roe was overturned does not count ANY of the self-managed abortions occurring in the US.

The report is clear on this; SFLA is not.

What is a self-managed abortion?

It's an abortion performed by a pregnant woman outside the formal healthcare system of clinics and doctors. Usually done today by ordering abortion pills online.

This ad from a pro-abortion org shows how easy it is.

🧵 A comparison of the differing approaches pro-choice and pro-life advocates take to supporting women.

It's a response to the common abortion stereotype that pro-lifers don't care about women or their born children, often used to avoid real conversation.

#ProLife #ProChoice
Pro-life advocates promote loving support for mothers and their families. They are included and important members of our society. Strong families build strong communities.

Here is a sample of the network of support the pro-life community continues to build. It is made possible through volunteers and donors dedicated to the wellbeing of women and their families.

(I apologize for the disorganization of the long list.)

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice signed a bill to help adoptive parents with tax credits. It will also provide funding to help pregnant women and infants through pregnancy resource center services. But some legislators are not happy with support for choices other than abortion. 🧵
"These centers never ask a woman for payment. They just help," said FFL President Serrin Foster. "We encourage legislators to visit pregnancy resource centers which support women who choose life with clothing, parenting classes, guiding them through the maze of programs…” 2/
“…such as SNAP and Medicaid, establishing paternity, applying for child support, and so much more. So what's the problem?" Serrin asked. "After all, they say they are pro-choice, right?" #FeministsForResourcesAndSupport #prolife

A human baby conceived on the day the Supreme Court overturned the Roe decision would be one week old, on average, today.

My goals for my career since disability are just 2

Be a positive difference to the world

Make a living so I can have a family of my own

Everything I've learned is that society will not bend an iota to enable people like me to make a productive difference & be self sufficient
I'm a very disabled man,

I don't want welfare,
I want to work,

But if no one is willing to treat the disabled fairly & give us a chance to work, or allow us the means to survive

What the hell are we supposed to do

Go find a quiet place to die!?😤 #Disability #ProLife
Thank goodness for freelance journalism cuz I'd be totally screwed without it

My income & lifestyle is difficult, but I have more than many others in similar situations

For which I am very grateful for, but it really does feel like I'm working against a stacked deck some days🤷

Correct me if I am wrong but I'm trying to put together some pieces... Anti-trans youth legislation comes to @wvlegislature. Fairness responds by hiring pro-life but gay MAGA Republican to lobby supermajority to vote down legislation. We actually LOST votes in the house. A 🧵 1/
Unexpected votes in favor of the trans youth genocide result in @WVCantWait and @mountainpartywv revoking endorsement. Fairness doubles down on lobbyist, and more anti LGBTQIA2+ legislation has been introduced this year than ever before. 2/

Advocating for an embryo/fetus while ignoring children who are living, breathing beings right in front of you is easy, lazy & performative.

This is our new #prolife dystopia: A woman was arrested for "chemical endangerment" for using drugs while pregnant. The problem: She wasn't pregnant. So officers released her, but told her if she gets pregnant IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS she'll be re-arrested.…
There are all kinds of legal things adults do that potentially put fetuses at risk of harm or death. Fetal personhood laws put pregnant women in a different category of person, vulnerable to prosecution for doing totally normal things. What if a woman falls skiing? Drinks coffee?
Of course law enforcement go for the most vulnerable and least sympathetic women first. No one is like, "using drugs while pregnant is great." But addiction is a disease. Many rehab centers won't take pregnant women. Locking pregnant women up puts them at greater risk.

We need to talk about women being pressured into abortions.

The European Court of Human Rights will rule today on a case where three women in a psychiatric institution were forced to have abortions against their will.

#ECHR #abortion #humanrights
Last month, the court ruled in a case where a 20-year-old had been forced to have an abortion by her parents, also against her will. The court strongly condemned this as a breach of human rights:
Forced abortion, they said, is
"an egregious form of inhuman and degrading treatment which had not only resulted in a serious immediate damage to her health – that is the loss of her unborn child – but had also entailed long-lasting negative physical and psychological effects."

So abortion is healthcare and a human right no matter the reason. I wanted to highlight this. TW: Miscarriage, Forced Birth, Loss of reproductive ability…
This woman almost lost her life because she didn't have access to an abortion. She miscarried. Her water broke at 14 weeks, and the doctors told her she will develop a life threatening infection, but because Texas is so vague with it's fucking law they couldn't provide abortion.
There was no saving the child. They were dead. They begged the doctors. There was nothing that they could do to save this wanted pregnancy.

So she went home.

And she developed an infection and was sent to the E.R. her fever spiked to 104 and they finally got the abortion.
